Hell Oh! – Blush – Single Review

It has been approaching eighteen months since the Brazilian alt-rock quartet Hell Oh! last featured.

Hell Oh! - Blush

Hell Oh! – Blush

Their latest single – released on the 14th – Blush discovers Hell Oh! with more psychedelic tint than much of their music previously featured.

Pace is slowed and lazily drifting shimmering guitar weaves through Blush giving the track an expansive air in which phrases hang in the air to be savoured before, gradually building replacement chords replace the sonics, with the listener always left with the sense that they are listening to billowing clouds of sound that run through the just over four minute track.

Blush – Single – Hell Oh! is available on iTunes.*

Initially looked at back in September, by way of one track and a promise to get back to them –  Hell Oh! now have more tunes I can hear that are freshly minted. Grinding their way out of the speakers like pepper going through the mill, there is an earthy fresh zest that captivates the audience as the growling guitar mutters malcontent whilst bass and percussion rumble across the room and a scoured vocal sheers its way around the ceiling.

Hell Oh! is able to transition between slowly paced pieces and hurried rattling windows with confidence as the quartet deliver music that emits connectivity with the listener whilst the garage rock influenced psychedelia wraps the mind in energy that draws in the ears.

From foot stomp, to laying supine Hell Oh! maintains a scruffiness into which it isn’t possible but to find appealing. The quartet is able to provide music which relies on careful composition as the textures build, yet provide the ears with easy to understand sounds that inject themselves into the bloodstream.

We’ve Got Nothing To Say But A Song is available on bandcamp.
